You are asked to imagine yourself on one of the original Orient Express journeys, travelling from Paris to Istanbul. Evenings consist of high quality dining (usually Italian style) accompanied by music and entertainment by a high quality band playing music of the era.
Spatz Quartet offer the music that might have featured in those days, most of which is as memorable now as it was then. Roy Mac, on vocals, Dick Lee on reeds and horns, Malcolm MacFarlane on guitar and Ed Kelly on Bass interact with instrumentals, songs, solos and humour – your journey will be only one hour but the music will be everlasting.
